Below is a list of programs I use to both photo and video edit. I primarily use Adobe products though, I know there are many ways to edit photos, this ecosystem is what I’ve become most familiar with over the years.
I use this program primarily to color correct and really start to refine the image. Lots of initial time is spent here making sure the images looks right before we move onto the next phase.
Photos that need that “little extra” to make them pop or, to remove or alter specific items or blemishes, are imported here and corrected as needed.
I’ve been using Adobe Premiere since before it was cool. 😉 I started on a PC and got familiar with the system and workflow and haven’t looked back. After transitioning to a MAC ecosystem, I still use it as my go-to editing program.
One of our other specialties is motion graphics and animation. After Effects has been a dependable program for the production and delivery of those assets.
When the going gets tough and the native controls in Premiere can’t handle the sound or, noise reduction as needed. Audition has the power and toolsets needed to clean up any extra artifacts or, crowd noises present in the media before final approvals.
